Status Quo / The Vinyl Singles Collection 1972-1979 / seven-inch box


Universal are to release a series of five Status Quo seven-inch single box sets, the first of which – The Vinyl Singles Collection 1972-1979 – is due next month.

With one box due for each decade (except the 1980s which needs two boxes!) these sets present the singles, mastered from the original tapes, and presented in their original sleeves (some picture sleeves, some generic label sleeves). Each box comes with a booklet that features relevant information on each 45 along with images or rare foreign covers and memorabilia.

The whole series starts with the singles taken from the first album with Vertigo (A&M in the US) which was Piledriver. Therefore, The Vinyl Singles Collection 1972-1979, kicks off with Paper Plane and ends with Living On An Island which was originally released in November 1979. It contains 13 seven-inch singles in total.

The Vinyl Singles Collection 1972-1979 will be issued on 10 March 2017.
